trinque: mod6: just to be clear, so far ben_vulpes has billed in arrears. we're moving to billing in advance?
trinque: I don't have a problem with that, but like things to be defined
trinque: lemme pull a list of invoice dates for ya
mod6: ben_vulpes said at the end of last month that I should send the august ones as soon as I have the price point. which is also what I committed to doing when we had this last go-around a week ago.
mod6: I'm just trying to stick to what I said I would do so you'd be happy.
ben_vulpes: trinque has it, mod6 is billing in advance now.
mod6: Ok, that contradicts what you asked me to do, and what we said we'd do.
ben_vulpes: mod6: no, what you have just done is bill for august service at the beginning of august.
trinque isn't pissed, just asking the question, as I didn't see an announcement
mod6: So should I cancel those invoices or what is the plan here?
trinque: mod6: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/I8ETC/?raw=true
ben_vulpes: mod6: everything is kosher, trinque wants clarity on arrears vs advance. what you are doing is billing in advance.
trinque: I've (more or less!) been paying at the end of the month for the prior month. I'm happy to begin paying for the month ahead, if y'all want that, but we oughta say what the policy is for the logs
mod6: i dont' really know what arreass is
ben_vulpes: arrears are for services rendered already.
mod6: clearly i'm not the man for this, just trying to keep things moving.
ben_vulpes: mod6: you're doing a great job, don't hang yourself over a term of art.
mod6: and keeping clients happy, which im having a hard time doing.
ben_vulpes: mod6: note he did not say that he was pissed, quite the contrary.
trinque: I'm just asking educational questions, is all
ben_vulpes: billing as soon as the price signal is set avoids further waffling over spread between when price signal is set and when bills go out. necessarily entails a move to billing in advance.
mod6: The invoices that I just made cover the service through the month of August. Invoices received need to be paid by the last day of August.
trinque: cool deal, that's exactly what I wanted in the logs
ben_vulpes: great!
mod6: Ok aweome. Thx.

a111: Logged on 2018-05-01 17:07 asciilifeform: quasi-relatedly, asciilifeform found himself wondering, why we're still on fleanode... between pizarro, mircea_popescu's racked boxes ( idk where, but presumably good ones ? ) , asciilifeform's own fiber, trinque , etc. could have a very solid irc net, potentially
phf: asciilifeform: presumably it is still a question of strategic superiority. there's no point on wasting resources on things of little consequence. #b-a => #trilema transition happened in a couple of days, with most original infra available within a week. nothing will prevent same when fleanode is defunct, meanwhile no reason to waste any cycles on it. also act from cause
asciilifeform: phf: last thing i want on my boxes, tho, is yet another 1MB ball of c opensores publicly-tcpable liquishit.
asciilifeform: even on a dedicated leprotoilet -- it's simply unseemly.
phf: well, right, but either or. no need to erect a leprotoilet right now if at all avoidable in the future.
asciilifeform: i'd like to avoid it entirely.
mircea_popescu: lobbes you're overworked, last i checked!
asciilifeform: rather than to end up ersatzing into it from 'we now have a week to move'.
mircea_popescu: moreover phf deeply has it ; the extant mp-wp infrastructure is wartime sufficient anyways,
phf: asciilifeform: you seem to be presenting an internally conflicting argument
asciilifeform: phf: elaborate?
mircea_popescu: and while at it, the essential part of "#b-a => #trilema transition happened" isn't even so much the (very extremely never-seen-before) narrow time wondows ; but the fact that ~it very much was~ on own fucking schedule. i don't recall having to hassle anyone about anything. it was a coupla days cuz it took me a coupla days, and it was a week because it took trinque, phf & gang a week.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: rechanneling inside fleanode is much smaller undertaking than baking a reasonable substitute for whole item tho
mircea_popescu: i don't see it.
mircea_popescu: same administrative/front end. what do you care whose ircd you run ?
phf: asciilifeform: well, we don't have a gossipd, so our only move option is to take steps towards gossipd or leprotoilet. "i personally would prefer exodus from fleanode to happen on our schedule" exists at odds with both. it seems to ask for "faster gossipd" or "leprotoilet" now, hence at odds.
asciilifeform: phf: i was referring to http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-04#1839467 variant.☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-08-04 22:05 asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: iirc i proposed at one time an intermediate item on the way to proper gossipd ( 'serpent'-ciphered tunneler to connect coupla ircd instances to each other, and ditto for users ( get otp cookie a la deedbot, get a key that's good for 1 tcp connect ) but so far instead followed mircea_popescu's advice re not wasting sweat on such a thing, but pushing with ffa so as to get with what to gossipd.
asciilifeform: but mircea_popescu has it -- even if fleanode unplugged tonight, we can still speak. it'll simply be temporary headache.
mircea_popescu: gotta permit fate to speak. for all you know we mgiht discover we didn't even like irc.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: recall, asciilifeform was initially a very reluctant user of irc.
mircea_popescu: as unlikely as it seems ; and it does seem. waves are the result of earth's existence, and the only way to conquer resistance of the medium is to make it work for you.
mircea_popescu: in any case, gotta let things like fiction characters play out their own life story.
asciilifeform was very much a 'real time speech is for lamers' type, prior to hanbot's instigation
asciilifeform will bbl -- meat
mircea_popescu: anyway, tbh i'm mostly encouraging the utter collapse of freenode's "security" model. it should be obvious that lode/ae dorks could just as well REGISTER the spambots. it's a fully automated process, what's the problem, emails ? gimme a break.
mircea_popescu: whole thing adds exactly nothing practically speaking.
mircea_popescu: but i want to fully realise the republican advantage over the pantsuit morons. this situation where #trilema is safe "and so are their chans" is overt socialism redistributing goods from us to the moronherd.
